The British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park (BISC-LP) Nursery through Year 6 (Grade 5)  curriculum is informed by what today’s students need to thrive in college and beyond.

Through a rigorous curriculum grounded in personalized and passion-based learning, children build resilience and a sense of agency while gaining an unparalleled intellectual foundation for lifelong learning and growth.

Children who attend BISC-LP experience a robust, state-of-the-art academic curriculum intently focused on preparing them for their future. In addition, we offer the Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme, which you can learn more about by visiting our social hub. The BISC-LP experience is designed for those who are willing to be challenged, work hard, cultivate an independent mind, and exercise their creativity and curiosity through a curriculum that's engaging and rewarding.

 At the same time, they will discover a nurturing and stimulating learning environment led by a dedicated, passionate, and highly educated faculty. At BISC-LP, the community created by children and faculty is authentic and strong. It is a community in which each child’s unique gifts and capabilities are respected and valued and given just the right combination of challenge and support to ensure that each student thrives.

Through this unique structure, BISC-LP is able to offer age-appropriate learning environments for every stage of a child’s social and intellectual development with amazing learning outcomes.
